The Pacific Northwest Pollution Prevention Resource Center (PPRC) is recognized for our professional and technical expertise in solving problems that lead to a healthier and more sustainable environment, while helping businesses improve their economic performance.
Core to our values is the understanding that preventing pollution or waste is a far better approach than trying to clean up problems once they’ve become an issue. Therefore, we are constantly looking for new approaches to solving problems, through opportunities such as green chemistry, safer chemical alternatives, resource efficiency, greenhouse gas reductions, environmental certification and trainings, and green assessments with Lean and system approaches.
We do our work in the Pacific Northwest with as many others that share our values as possible. We truly believe in the synergy that partnerships engender. In all likelihood, those partnerships may involve unlikely collaborators and that’s great because we are particularly fond of developing strong private/public partnerships. Because we are not regulators, we are considered trusted brokers of information and resources for regional businesses, and this trust helps assure our success.
